David Webb

Characterized by bold colors and large gemstones, David Webb was among the leaders of a new breed of jewelry designers who began to emerge in America following World War II. One of the most captivating jewelers of the 20th century, David Webb is popular for his jewelry's timeless taste and universal appeal.

A native of North Carolina, David Webb opened his first jewelry store in the late '40s in the Diamond District of New York. Most of his inspiration came from the clean geometry of the Art Deco era, but Webb also incorporated ancient world jewelry designs and the rich enamel work of the Middle Ages.
